The Information Systems Research Program (ISRP) receives substantial support from the UCLA Anderson School's IS Associates Program. Beyond the funds provided through their memberships, IS Associates often collaborate in the ISRP's research, providing sites for case studies, for instance. Too, some participate at a higher level as IS Research Associates.

IS Research Associates


IS Research Associates are special member firms of the IS Associates. They are themselves engaged in research complementing that of UCLA Anderson’s ISRP. Through their special membership, they effectively partner with the ISRP in furthering their own research ends as well as those of UCLA Anderson. The partnership is tailored to serve both the IS Research Associates and UCLA Anderson.

IS Research Associates are provided with the following:

• Research project consulting services by arrangement
• Joint research publications as appropriate
• Full benefits associated with IS Associates membership

IS Research Associates support UCLA Anderson’s ISRP with the following:

• Shared research data
• Access to people and research sites as appropriate
• Research funds provided through their annual memberships

Where appropriate, IS Research Associates may also participate in the ISRP's Industrial Fellows Program, which brings technology leaders and researchers to the UCLA campus from around the world for a one-to-two-week-long series of exchanges with faculty and students across the school and elsewhere on campus to further mutual learning and build new relationships.
